PECHA KUCHA Night PDX vol. 23 - Needs Versus Desires

Tue Jun 13

Doors: 6:30 pm / Show: 7:30 pm

More Info

We are pleased to announce our next PechaKucha Night PDX on Tuesday, June 13, at Holocene!

Our presenters will unpack the night’s theme of Needs Versus Desires – the never-ending dance between that which is crucial for survival and the things that make being alive fulfilling. If the line between the two is often blurred, how do we define them? Is desire the passion that keeps one going and achieving goals, or does it denote the vices of greed and materialism? Do needs only exist on the most basic of levels (think: food, clothing and shelter) or are they sometimes more indiscernible? And what are things you think you want but, at the end of the day, you may be better off without?

Please join our PechaKucha speakers and volunteers on June 13 while enjoying handcrafted cocktails, wine, and beer, along with a live set by DJ Bobby and a PechaKucha Night PDX first: a live musical performance by Portland’s own May Arden!
